Nice work by Al at Hop Talk with tips for saving a bit when you buy beer. He starts from a post at the Personal Finance Advice which deals with beer the commodity, and turns it into a discussion about buying the beer we all drink.
Might as well start at the top:
1. If you have the choice, avoid purchasing your beer in bars and restaurants where they are typically much more expensive.
Well, duh! But what if that’s where your friends are? I’d rather have just a couple of good beers with good friends at the brewpub than to suck down a bunch a bottles at home alone.
Well said. (Read the rest.)
The bottom line is there is a difference between getting your money’s worth and getting the largest amount of beer for your buck.
